Chicago Honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
One Good Deed Chicago participated in two days of service in January in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
On Jan. 14, the One Good Deed team volunteered in Chicago Cares' Celebration of Service. More than 3,000 Chicagoans volunteered their days to work on a variety of projects to make Chicago a better place. The One Good Deed group spent the day playing dominoes and doing an art project with senior citizens in an apartment community in Lincoln Park.
On Jan. 16, a team from the Mayor's Office helped renew the North Lawndale YMCA. Working with City Year Chicago, the group completed a massive repainting project and made bookcases for the YMCA. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the cast of "Race" at the Goodman Theatre were among the notable volunteers.
